Mac Miller On Lord Finesse Lawsuit
“This case is about the overall picture.. If you’re just looking at “one” point.. It’s about so much more #look deeper..”
Kool-aid and frozen pizza may cost a few millions for Mac Miller. DITC leader Lord Finesse filed a $10 million lawsuit against Mac for borrowing sampling “Hip 2 Da Game” beat. He used the track on his debut mixtape, KIDS. Once Mac caught the loop (no pun), he reacted via Twitter account.
I’m supposed to be on hush but lemme speak on this real quick.
1. I made that record and video as nothing more than an 18 year old kid who wanted to rhyme and pay homage, no other intentions.
2. Finesse and I spoke on the phone for an hour after he heard the record and cleared the air.
We even planned to work on music together. 3. All I wanted to do is shed light on a generation that inspired me.
4. When I heard there was a problem, I reached out to him to try and solve it. No response.
5. Finesse never cleared the Oscar Peterson sample on the original record. I did nothing wrong. We spoke on the phone had a good conversation, he was cool with the record. It’s all love tho. I ain’t even mad at dude. He still a legend.
Lord Finesse, thank you for what u did for hip hop. Thank you for bringing my favorite rapper into the game. I should just drop some new music.
